Forbes Living to Report on Teens' Sleeping Habits in an Upcoming Segment

  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) August 31, 2014 - The Forbes Living TV show will look at a strange dichotomy that has been allowed to develop over decades. Since medical science has long known that teenagers need 8-9 hours of sleep each night - more than their parents need - why has the starting time for school gotten ever earlier over the years? There has been no shortage of reports from teachers watching students yawn and doze off during early classes. The education system has known about this for a long time.

    Pediatricians and school nurses have been urging administrators to allow their young charges to get the sleep they need before challenging them with the tasks of learning and socialization during the school day. The hormonal effects prohibit kids from falling asleep before 11 p.m., so even a 30-45 minute delay in starting time in the morning would make a noticeable difference in student performance.

    "Forbes Living viewers are savvy consumers and trendsetters who want to be the first to know about what's new and hot," said Ms. Riley. "Forbes Living is the ultimate guide to tomorrow's must-have products and solutions. From beauty to fitness, interior design to runway fashion, and much more, if it's about to explode, you'll find it on Forbes Living."
